Muschamp To Florida, No Longer a Coach-In-Waiting, Meyer Left For Health Reasons

Former Texas DC Will Muschamp, who once lived in Gainesville, Florida as a kid, says taking over the Florida program is a "dream come true."

Wonder what Georgia fans think of that call...???

Florida athletic director Jeremy Foley says in a statement that Muschamp is the "only person we met with and the only person we offered the job to."

Tim Tebow tweeted the following last night...

"Welcome to the Gator family Coach Muschamp! You'll soon find out why it's great to be a Florida Gator! God bless and Go Gators!!!"

Here's how our friends at KVUE-TV broke the news...
Matt Mitchell sits at the adult table...

So, does this mean they'll call him "Swamp Muss" now...???

1130 UPDATE: Urban Meyer, apparently, left for health reasons- although he says he didn't...

According to the Gainesville Sun and attached anonymous sources, Meyer has a recurring burning sensation in his chest that doctors told him last week would raise cardiovascular risk factors if he continued to coach.

Meyer said he wanted to spend more time with his family.

The person with knowledge of Meyer's health said the coach can resolve his chest pain with "constant monitoring," which he already has started doing.
